A garden has been completely transformed into a Christmas winter wonderland all in aid of local causes.

Paul Hammond and Suzanne Chapman have transformed their garden on Kilbourn Road, Pakefield in Lowestoft, for the third time as part of their 'Back 2 Life' campaign, which is a mental health charity.

Mr Hammond said: "This year the garden is bigger and better and took us three weeks to put together, with a light tunnel and Santa's grotto as additions.

"The response from the community is always tremendous and we couldn't do it without their support.

"It would be great if we could raise between £4,000 to £5,000 this year."
